Ba Zhen Tang (Eight Treasure Tea Pills)

Ba Zhen Wan (Women's Precious Teapills)Women tend to be prone to deficiency of blood and qi because of their different reproductive system structure and physiological functions – menses, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These factors could easily cause woman to age prematurely, or even diseases due to malnutrition of the body’s organs. Thankfully, TCM herbalists have come up with one of famed herbal remedies for women long ago – Ba Zhen Tang or Wan (8 treasure tea pills or decoction).

Women love beauty is a nature but unfortunately, more often than not, they are aiming in the wrong direction, such as applying cosmetics, heading to beauty parlor, taking diet pills and unnecessary supplements, and receiving breast enlargement surgery. However, the clever woman needs only to do one thing right – take good care of her blood and qi. The reason is so obvious because the plenty of them are the sole source of beauty and health.

Theories behind Ba Zhen Tang

Before going into details, it is important to go over some basic knowledge about these two concepts from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Blood is considered as the most important in Yin body fluids, which is closely related, although not identical, to the counterpart in Western medicine. Besides of supplying physical basis to human body and tonifying the organs, it also shoulders another crucial task – carrying Qi along with it.

This is because TCM believes that blood and qi supplement each other, the latter regulating the former’s course while providing the momentum needed and the former nourishing zang-fu viscera in order to generate both them again. They just keep working this way over and over again. Furthermore, the former also regulates body temperature and moods while the latter fights against the exogenous pathogens and enhances the functions of zang-fu viscera.

Insufficiency thus occurs when the body bleeds heavily or lacks raw material for generation of them. The causes include massive hemorrhage, chronic eating disorders, and prolonged diseases, etc. As a result, a dark complexion occurs if zang-fu lacking of nourishment and vertigo appears if head lacking of nourishing. Usually the most affected organ is heart, directly presenting heart throbbing in chest.

Deficient qi follows the viscera weakening. It, as mentioned above, is in charge of dynamic offering. Hence, the initial symptoms are impotence, fatigue, low weak voice, and less willing to speak. After the dynamic reducing, the most severely hit will be stomach and spleen, which are responsible for accommodating food, transporting nutrition and fluid and require the power all the time. The deficiency of it results in lack of power, which thus tremendously brings down the capacity of holding food. Therefore, people tend to lose their appetite.

What is Ba Zhen Wan?

Also known as women’s precious formula (teapills) or eight treasure tea pills, it comes from Zheng Ti Lei Yao (Cataloged Essentials for Correcting the Body), published in 1529 by Bi Li-zhai. Sometimes this formula is misspelled as Ba Zheng Tang (Wan), but please note that they are two different formulas.

Herbal ingredients

Dang Gui (Dong Quai);
Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root);
Bai Shao (White Peony Root);
Shu Di Huang (Rehmannia);
Ren Shen (Ginseng);
Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome);
Fu Ling (Poria);
Zhi Gan Cao (Honey Fried Licorice Root).

The dosage depends on a few different factors, like the severity of diseases, age, and sex, etc. If in doubt, please consult a TCM physician.

Benefits and indications

Main function of this recipe is to invigorate blood-qi. Main uses and indications are deficiency of them, manifested sallow or pale complexion, palpitation, inappetence, shortness of breath, laziness to speak, tired limbs, dizziness, pale tongue with white coating, and weak thready pulse or hollow pulse.

From the point of view of western medicine, Ba Zhen Tang is very likely to be used in chronic diseases like anemia, persistent hepatitis, and neurasthenia and in gynecopathy like irregular menstruation, retarded growth of fetus, metrorrhagia and metrostaxis, and habitual abortion. In addition, it is also suitable for excessive bleeding in trauma and long-term ulcer as long as the pathogenesis is qi-blood deficiency.

Prescription analyzing

The ingenuity of this herbal soup is that it consists of two ancient Chinese herbal formulas – Si Wu Tang (4 Agents Decoction) and Si Jun Zi Tang (Four Gentlemen Decoction).

Si Wu Tang is known as The First Famous Formula for Replenishing Blood, which has the best treatment effect for conditions due to Yin blood deficiency. And Si Jun Zi Tang mainly restores the function of spleen-stomach to promote the circulation of blood-qi. The combination brings out the best in each other and appropriate for more severe conditions.

Potential side effects and contraindications

Does it sound too good to be true? Unfortunately it is far from a panacea. It works only for those symptoms and signs caused by blood-qi deficiency. But if not, it is a good idea to stay away from it for those with heavy internal heat or fever and cold. Else, because the herb of rehmannia contained is notoriously difficult to digest, extreme care should be taken when using Ba Zhen Wan or Ba Zhen Pian in those with upset stomach or chronic indigestion.

        Ya sure, its good for men that are pale and weak, borderline anemic. A more red faced strong man might be better off with a more cooling herbal formula. Herbalsim is complex, this formula is fairly safe for most people. Maybe if someone was very old and weak it could cause dizzyness.

    strange choice for someone going through menopause!!!!! I practice TCM.. I would think you should have Liu Wei DI Huang Wan or Zhi Bai Di Huang wan.. bearing in mid that I dont know you, and I am NOT prescribing them to you, but these are common formulas for menopause smtoms (hot flashes, dryness etc).. Ba ZHen Tang is for qi and blood deficiency, more for people with lethargy, tiredness etc..

      Hello Kat,
      I too am taking levothyroxine, and have found out the hard way (by changing involuntary by pharmacy)they are not the same. Slow/faster release,coated/non-coated etc. perhaps change. I changed from small uncoated to larger uncoated and don’t have the reverse symptoms I had (look-up reverse T3/T4).
      Also take Guggels. (I,m taking loose and capsules.) Caps in between meals and powder mixed with Triphala and raw honey-equal amounts)at bedtime.
      The honey mixture looses some fat and energizes.
      Also check damp internal and Qi def in Chinese medicine.
      recommend the triphala guggul powder with honey if nothing else. Will help Anita

    My doctor of TCM prescribed Ba Zhen Wan while I am pregnant. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant, but I have had 3 consecutive losses previously (at 5 weeks, 11 weeks, and 14 weeks). Right now, I am very anxious and tired. My TCM doctor says my tongue is quite pale.

    My TCM practitioner encouraged me to research Ba Zhen Wan and in doing so, I have not found much information about taking it when pregnant, but there are sites that say to use it with caution when pregnant.

    Does this sound like an appropriate herb to take during pregnancy when I have had several miscarriages in the past?

    Reply
    1. admin Post author

      The belief of Ba Zhen Wan associating with miscarriage mainly comes from the fact that it contains the herb of dong quai/Dang Gui (click here for more information about this herb), which may lead to abortion when used alone, according to some experiments. As you know, caution is always in need when it comes to prescribe a formula to a patient, especially during pregnancy. However, the essence of TCM is all about the spirit of one formula one diagnosis. That is to say, if Ba Zhen Wan is the right remedy for your condition, dong quai is not a problem at all because in a well-formulated formula the drug interactons can strengthen or weaken some certain effect, which is the glamour of the complex prescription and where a good herbalist comes in. For example, in Zhang Zhongjing’ Shang Han Lun (On Cold Damage) and Jin Gui Yao Lue (Essential Prescriptions of the Golden Coffer), there are two famous formulas, Xiong Gui Jiao Ai Tang and Dang Gui Shao Yao San, that are often used in miscarriage prevention. Both of them contains dong quai, Bai Shao (White Peony Root), and Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root). So, please consult your TCM doctor for further opinion and follow his instructions. Congratulations and best wishes!

      Ba Zhen Pian, Wan or Tang actually are the same thing. Under normal circumstances it is safe to consume in lactation as long as it fits your condition. Sorry I am unable to give you a more definite reply since I have no idea about your specific situation.

          This formula acts on benefiting vital energy and replenishing blood. So it is ideal for Qi-blood deficiency, which often occurs in women after childbirth. However, since it involves many ingredients and unclear clinical pharmacology, some ingredients may have an impact on the baby through breast milk. So, it is highly recommended to use it with caution.

      First all, Ba Zhen Tang won’t cause side effects like extreme bloating or cramping when used in the right person. But it is very likely to cause problems when used in the wrong person. That’s the reason why you’d better ask the opinion from an experienced TCM doctor before taking it. In your situation, it is highly recommended to stop taking it right away. Besides, using Ba Zhen Tang during menstrual period is inadvisable.

      As a yin tonic, Ba Zhen Tang is ideal for those who are with cold hands and feet or feel cold all the time, which indicates that it is of warm nature. Viewed from this angle, it may affect body temperature as a whole. But it is so mild in nature that it is suitable for women who want to get pregnant.

    I am in my second month of weekly acupuncture and I have stage 5 endometriosis. I have been feeling so much better! I was in so much pain during my cycles with cysts bursting it’s like borderline labour pains, so relief and getting my life back is the most important thing but I’ve been tracking my cycles of course and noticed I ovulated this month which is kind of an amazing thing considering what I’ve been through (2 major surgeries in the last year with a total of 6 so far being 29yr old) I was just prescribed the eight treasures as my last cycle was still a struggle. 10 pills 3xday for bassically the whole month. If I happen to conceive should I stop taking it or will it help to prevent an early miscarriage which I’ve experienced in the past. Is it something you can take during each stage of your cycle? I’ve read it’s only meant to be taken on the days following your period?

      It is advisable to stop it if you happen to be pregnant. This is true that it does help prevent early miscarriage but it depends on the pattern you belongs to.

      If a woman suffers from uterine fibroids, breast cancer, and any other estrogen-related diseases, she shouldn’t dose herself with Ba Zhen Tang, which works like estrogen and might increase the risk of uterine fibroids and uterine congestion. It is especially inadvisable for women with menorrhagia. However, clinically it commonly serves as part of treatment of breast cancer patients since this formula supplements Qi and blood and helps reduce the side effects of chemotherapy drugs. So, don’t take it if you are in doubt.

      From your information, my preliminary analysis is that this pill may not be a good one for you since you have excess yin cold inside, for which Ba Zhen Tang can do very little. Probably what you need is the formulas that contain Prepared Aconite Root (fu zi) and Sheng Jiang (Fresh Ginger Rhizome), which are good at dispersing yin-cold while restoring devastated yang.

        BaZhen soup and pills are basically the same thing. In comparison, the decoction acts more quickly and powerfully while the pills work slowly and steadily. So, decoction is generally used for emergencies but pills is often used for mild and chronic diseases.

    I purchased Ba Zhen Wan today for a new tonic for amenhorrea. My cycles have always been irregular. For five years, since the age of 15, I took birth control for regulation. In my early twenties I ceases birth control and had no menstruation for about two years. I concurrently developed eating disorders, and am certain I had low nutrition. At 22 I found Chaste Tree Berry which brought back my cycles. This worked for several years to bring regularity. Now the Chaste Tree Berry doesn’t produce the same effec. A few months ago I created a new formula for myself with Dandelion, Burdock, Dong Quai, Licorice, Rosehips, Skullcap, Ginger and Turmeric. This helps my mood swings but has not created consistency. My gynecologist found I have benign cysts around my ovaries. He suggests taking progesterone, a powerful hormone, to enduce menstruation. I would prefer a holistic approach. Is Ban Zhen Wan safe to take with cystic conditions?

    Reply
    1. admin Post author

      As a holistic approach, the TCM formula you use should take all factors into account, for example benign cysts in your case. That’s to say, the solution should benefit cysts too. As long as this formula fits you, it will be safe. Mind you, please use Ba Zhen Wan under the guidance of TCM theory.

      TCM believes that the main culprit for endometriosis is blood stasis, which can be formed due to a few different factors. So, the prescription should be given according to these factors. In addition, clinically most cases of endometriosis belong to the excess or mixture of excess and deficiency. In other words, the pure deficiency type of endometriosis is rare. If you have your suspicions, please talk to your acupuncturist.

I have started to wonder though if it is still the appropriate formula for me as I am now almost 53 and have started to have some peri-menopausal symptoms such as very light or missed periods. I am very healthy and the only other concern is bloodwork shows slightly low sluggish thyroid function (not enough to warrant medication unless I want it, I choose not) although I feel good and am very fit at an ideal weight. I have no symptoms in other words. Ideally I know I should see a TMC practitioner but my insurance does not cover it and I can’t afford it at this time.

Since my cytotec I have not stopped bleeding so it’s been about 3 weeks and is excessive which I saturate 2-3 pads in 2.5 hours or an clotting. Is women’s precious the cause?
